Gronkowski caught 5-of-10 targets for 68 yards in Thursday's 27-25 win over the Jets.
Gronkowski uncharacteristically dropped a pass, but he's back to looking like his usual self, which can also be said of both Tom Brady and the New England offensive line. While it's rather surprising that Brady tossed three touchdowns without one going to his star tight end, there should be some big weeks ahead for the prolific duo. Assuming he stays healthy, Gronkowski should be one of the three or four best options at his position week in and week out.

Gronkowski caught seven passes (on nine targets) for 94 yards in Sunday's 37-22 win over the Bills.
Per the Boston Globe, Gronkowski had a bit of an injury scare with his surgically-repaired left arm in the game, but he returned to action not long thereafter. Assuming no further injury setbacks, Gronkowski is in line to remain heavily-involved in the Patriots' passing attack going forward, and should thus remain a fixture in fantasy lineups.

Gronkowski (knee) caught six passes for 100 yards and a touchdown on 11 targets in Sunday's 43-17 win over the Bengals.
Gronkowski played the majority of New England's snaps, even staying in a blowout deep into the fourth quarter. His snaps and role have been trending in the right direction, and the same can now be said of his team's offense. With the offensive line looking much improved, Tom Brady honed in on his tight ends Sunday night, allowing Tim Wright to add a 5-85-1 receiving line to Gronkowski's production. Next week's matchup with the Bills is tricky, but a healthy Gronkowski is always worth starting.

Gronkowski (knee) caught 2-of-3 targets for 31 yards and a touchdown in Monday's 41-14 loss to the Chiefs.
Gronkowski salvaged his fantasy night with an impressive garbage-time touchdown that came from the arm of backup quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. The tight end played more than half of the offensive snaps, but he was still subbed out on a semi-regular basis. While Gronkowski should increase his non-touchdown production as the season moves along, it's rather concerning for his fantasy owners that the New England offense looks so bad. The pass protection has been particularly troublesome, which limits the team's opportunities to take decent shots downfield.
